Your Thoughts on the Short Stories of Andre Dubus II   

Short stories are no less complex than novels despite the limited amount of space for getting the job done. This two-session course invites readers to explore the complex artistry of Andre Dubus II. His work is not always comfortable. Dubus intends that his readers struggle with his characters and themes but come away with a deeper understanding of humanity. In the first session, we will discuss “A Father’s Story.” In the second, we will discuss “Townies.” Both pieces can be found in his anthology “The Winter Father (Collected Short Stories & Novellas), Volume 2,” ISBN# 9781567926170. Please read the short stories before joining the session. Thought provoking questions will be provided to participants prior to each session, as well as informational links on Andre Dubus’ life and work.
